g3d.dll freeze again!

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

This after I've re-installed P3Dv2.5 to try to cure error.

 

I seem to be getting a g3d.dll freeze everytime when I fly towards N52*15′ latitude over the UK from RAF Waddington towards RAF Scampton EGXP.

 

If I load a flight plan for any where south of that line, say Exeter, Biggin Hill etc., the flight loads and flies OK. Load a flight plan for RAF Scampton and it will freeze with a g3d.dll error on finalizing load. I’ve disabled all photographic scenery via my Scenery Library and the result is still the same. Frustrating!!

 

I have FSUIPC 4939n, SimLauncherX, GeForce 352.86 WHQL, P3D.cfg:-

I fly mainly in UK using GA so no high speed stuff here and have reduced sliders to halfway or so but it makes no difference, would like a fix for this.

If you have tested without any addons and still get the error, I suggest you re-install the GPU drivers.

After you re-install the drivers delete or backup your current P3D.cfg

I hope it helps.

The only fix I know of for the G3D.dll error is FSUIPC.dll. It traps the error as there is no known fix. See the AVSIM CTD Guide for further information.

That trap and patch was for one specific and common G3D crash (out of many possible) and applies to FSX SP1/SP2/Acc and P3D 1.4 only. It doesn't apply to P3D version 2. The code is very different. It was also fixed by DTG in FSX-SE along with several others.

Thanks for the update Pete. I have not seen the G3D error in FSX or P3D v2.5 (or any version of P3D). I got the crash only with FTX PNW installed until you were able to trap and patch the error. I still think it is a fix for many.

The cause of tne g3d.dll freezes were FS9 files converted to FSX and then used in P3d v2.5. Since I have deleted all modified FSX airfields and isolated any .bgl files which probably originated from FS9 I've had no g3d.dll errors or MSVCR100.dll freezes.

 

LM have just issued v2.5.12946 Hotfix 4 which is not compatible with Instant Scenery 3, found this out to my error.

Thanks for your solutions.  We have had hundreds of members trying to resolve the cause of this crash without success.  My crashes occurred mainly when enabling FTX PNW and around the Seattle area.  I had some freeware scenery in the area too which many do not have installed.  Whenever I got into a close radius of Seattle, the G3D error.  Of course, the hundreds who have been looking for a solution to this problem did not get the crash in the Seattle area with the same scenery and addon's installed.  The fsuipc.dll trap of this crash was the only thing that fixed this problem for me and hundreds more.  I have since uninstalled all FTX/Orbx scenery and so far no crashes.  I do not use FTX/Orbx scenery for P3D and have never seen a crash with P3D yet.  I instead use photoscenery and, for areas that I don't use photoscenery, I use the latest versions of GEX and UTX.  GEX replaces all default scenery textures.

 

In regards to your last statement, Hotfix 5 was just released, not Hotfix 4.

 

I am almost certain Scenery3 has not been updated for the latest hotfix for P3D - http://www.simforums.com/forums/instant-scenery-3-and-p3d-v25_topic51609.html.
